Printing and Scanning / Brother HL-L2390DW scanner not found, unable to scan
« Last post by Warde Hayden on March 20, 2019, 10:38:54 PM »
I am using LL 4.2, just got a Brother HL-L2390DW All in One Printer Scanner, was unable to load disc that came with printer.
I am able to print documents but unable to scan, get message to hook up scanner or scanner not found. Simple Scan icon appears on desktop. I am dual booting with Windows10 and can perform all functions. Have been working with Brother Support but they have no solutions as yet.
My command entry is not that swift so any instructions have to be specific and step by step.
Thank you, in advance for any help.

Installing Software / Re: installing avast
« Last post by Searchernow on March 20, 2019, 06:12:53 PM »
I'm certainly not in a position to make any definite statement about it, but the Lite manual does say

"Viruses can occur on any computer system. The following tutorial is a collection of commands that allows you to scan your entire system for viruses.

Install the virus scanner:   [etc.] "

file:///usr/share/doc/litemanual/tutorials.html?q=virus&x=4&y=6&per_page=7&matchtype=0#antivirus

So maybe there is a need to be cautious....

Hard Drives and SSD's / Re: Lost 70GB of SSD space
« Last post by timbuck2 on March 20, 2019, 04:45:13 PM »
So? What happened?
Did you resolve the issue?


Please share the knowledge.


Yes, problem solved. I installed the 'ncdu' package which is very nice for showing disk usage.

I used "sudo ncdu -x" to just show usage on my SSD...Top of the list for usage was "/var/spool/cups" which had over a 100GB used.

Deleted all the spool files from within "ncdu" with the 'd' key and now have gained my 100+GB back.

But I have no idea why the spool files were not automatically cleared out...anyone know why?

In the source.lists try to stay clean. If possible, use LL-repositories. In principle, you do not need anti-virus software with GNU / Linux.

Other / Onboard keyboard shows black (no letters) at login screen
« Last post by JanetBiggar on March 20, 2019, 02:32:24 AM »
So far the Onboard keyboard at login has worked well on two other older laptops, however on one laptop (a Mecer, i3, RAM 2 GB, HD approx 250 GB) it is now showing a black box with no letters at login.

It did show the proper keyboard at login initially, but not now even if I shut down and reboot.  When I do login using the real keyboard I can pull up the Onboard keyboard which shows up and works just fine.

I did find this thread, however it is rather detailed and greek to me!  Here is the link:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/onboard/+bug/1562734

I initially had added the package via a command line rather than through install/remove programs in menu: $ sudo apt-get install onboard then opened the lightdm to set the keyboard on login settings via the misc tab.

These further comments may be helpful:
1) I decided to completely uninstall Onboard and then reinstall via the install/remove programs in the menu.  I clicked for install on the same two packages which I uninstalled earlier.  It when through what it was suppose to do, but then a message came up saying that it couldn't install it (sorry, I didn't take a pic of exactly what it said).
2) I then decided to restore to an early system back restore.  Once restored I shut down and rebooted and voila the login Onboard keyboard showed up just fine.  I then shut it down again and rebooted and now the login keyboard is black again.

Does anyone have a fix for this?

Why?  We have ClamAV in the repositories if you think you need antivirus software on Linux (which you prob'ly don't).

Looks like disk maybe full, /home..
In terminal you can confirm by typing...
Code: [Select]
df -hIf /home is full, clear some space maybe dowloads or move to another disk/drive etc....
